Angry EPA Bass acwards?

ive been thinking about this for a long time.
you all know what im talking about.

lets use a 6.4 as an example. the EPA forced new emission requirements bla bla bla.. 6.4's ended up with a dpf.

while it did clean up emissions. (and took the diesel smell away )
they also get half the mileage. is it just me or does it not make sense to burn double the fuel during the life of the vehicle just to make the tail pipe a little cleaner?

look at this:


this is my moms brand new 2011 gmc terrain. 4cyl. only 8k miles

i swiped my finger in the end of the tail pipe. mine is on the right heres is on the left their virtually the same

now you think a 2011 vehicle would burn much cleaner then a 03 6.0 straight piped and it gets worse mileage then my truck!!!! it only gets 19-20 on the highway and i can get 20-22 easily. 8140 pounds of f2-fiddy

seems messed up right? gmc say there is nothing wrong with here suv. how does something like that pass 2011 emissions?
i mean a 2011 6.7 burns cleaner then that.

what are you guys think?

i know most of us hate the EPA. i am one of them. well im also getting an egr delte sometime this week so they can suck on that to

I think they see smoke and think it is instantly worse that gases you can't see coming from a gasoline engine. There must seriously be a bunch of idiots running the EPA. They can suck it when I get my EGR delete too.

My opinion? The EPA can blow me And they can also suck my straight-piped 7.3, which has absolutley no problems related to emissions equipment, cause it's not there
